As detailed in his book, Unlimited Power: The New Science of Personal Achievement, Tony Robbins was once struck by the relatively low statistics of athletes getting cancer (in comparison to the average american). His research based conclusion was that athletes simply get more oxygen into their system on a regular basis than the rest of us. The increased oxygen supply in the bloodstream stimulates the lymph, which in turn stimulates the immune system to operate at peak levels.

If you inhaled for four seconds, you would hold for sixteen and exhale for eight. why exhale for twice as long as you inhale? That’s when you eliminate toxins via your lymphatic system. why hold four times as long? That’s how you can fully oxygenate the blood and activate your lymphatic system. when you breathe, you should start deep in your abdoment, like a vacuum cleanere that’s getting rid of all toxins in the blood stream.”
Tony recommends taking 10 deep breaths in this way, 3 times a day. Inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth. He says work up slowly, never strain, and always start your breaths from your abdomen. Breathe in a ratio of 1-4-2 for inhale-hold-exhale. That means if you deeply inhale for 7 seconds, you hold for 28 seconds and exhale for 14 seconds. If you do this alone for 10 times three times a day you can significantly raise your energy-level.
